Since 1941, Highland Orchards, Inc. has been a family business.Maintenance of the Orchard as well as its’ roads, buildings and equipment has always been an important part of the Highland Orchards farming operation. To do the jobs needed on the farm, such as orchard renewal, soil conservation measures, building irrigation ponds, and roads, we purchased equipment and got plenty of practice using it.
In the mid 1960’s we started the Appleville home community on part of the property. This started with leveling and grading sites. We built roads, sidewalks and patios. We also built the water and septic systems. By utilizing the expertise gained, the Orchard began doing jobs for neighbors, the township, and site excavation and road building for local developments.
In the 1980’s the farm operation formed a separate Paving and Excavating department. This part of the business has continually grown, under the watchful eye of Bruce Hodge, by purchasing and maintaining the equipment needed and by having a well skilled crew with the expertise to do the job right.
Currently, over 300 driveway paving jobs are completed each year, as well as many other site preparation and excavating projects. Highland Orchards paving and excavating is a small company that treats every project with equal importance, as if it were their own home or business. Bruce and his crew take pride in having the knowledge and the skills to provide their customers with the best quality job possible. We attain this by paying very close attention to the details, while keeping communication lines open between the customer and the employees. Highland Orchards values the customer feedback, and we stand behind our work! We would love the opportunity to discuss your project with you!
